A Twist To My Journey

Second Saturday of each month I host a free crop in Lexington, SC.  I'm usually fluttering here, there, and everywhere and do not get to scrapbook.  This past Saturday I was determined to create a few layouts. 

I have a studio and then some full of papercrafting products.  I learned Saturday that maybe having too much can squash your creativity.  I grabbed a few photos and filled up my tote with paper, embellishments, ink, TOOLS, and headed out to the crop.  The beginning was the hardest.  I kept thinking what I had at home.  After a while I became determined to use what I had no matter what.  I ended up with three cute layouts to share this week.  I was really satisfied and excited about using just what was in my tote to create fun layouts.   This is an interesting discovery along my journey. 

I think maybe my journey is not back to where I was but to find a better motivation and inspiration than I had before.

The photo/layout is part of my daughter's wedding album.  These are some candid shots of her and her "girls."

You will only be able to get this deal on Debby's Dare.  There is a Paypal button with the photo of the product and the qualities available at the beginning of the sale on the top, right had of this blog. Once the quantities are gone the sale is over for that item.  So if you like what you see don't hesitate to get yours.

This week I'm offering Quick Quotes Bitty Book in a Box, Grandma's Bragbook.  I haven't even offered these over at heART of Scrapbooking.  The regular price is $9.99.  I'm offering this wonderful project at $5.00 plus 4.99 for shipping.  I'm only offering 5 at this price.  Order more than one and it's still only 4.99 for shipping.  I can not ship Internationally.

  1. I really love your layout Debby! It's just beautiful! Very cool kit! You do still ship to Canada, don't you? One more thing...did you every do your giveaway draw last week? I didn't see who the winner was to congratulate them. Have a happy day!...Nancy :o)

  2. Your layout is great Debby.
    I find that to be the hardest also, in using what you take and knowing what to take to a crop or a friends.

  3. Great post, food for thought about having too much stash. Love your layout!

  4. Great layout. Love the kit, perfect gift for the holidays.

  5. Awesome layouts and I was stationed in SC so I know exactly where Lexington is .. small world

  6. beautiful lo's and love the bragbook. that rocks. have fun at your crop!

  7. I have to agree, Deb! Sometimes, "too much" can be a distraction, rather than an ispiration. Too many choices, too many colors, too many papers, too many flowers, too many stamps. If I think first that I want to use this stamp set and these colors, I can zero in on an idea and get really excited and inspired, but it's all fun!

  8. lots of goodies on your blog, love it!

  9. Your layout is beautiful. It is a challenge to just use a small percentage of our stash, but it is fun :)
